Wordpress Engineer - Genesis Developer


Idaho Falls, United States


I am a Wordpress Engineer that specializes in creating Genesis Child Themes. I can build a professional Wordpress theme based on your PSD or AI design. PSD to WP Starting Cost $1000 I can take your existing design and build it on a theme framework (Genesis Recommended), along with any required custom post types and Javascript. Custom Plugin Development - Starting Cost $1000 There are so many Wordpress plugins out there, but many of them don't quite make the cut when it comes to your specific business requirements. I can take your requirements and build them into a Wordpress plugin that does exactly what you ... moreneed and is stable and able to be forward compatible with Wordpress as it gets updated. Plugin Modification - Starting Cost $500 Sometimes there is a plugin that is so close to what you need, if it only did X, it would be perfect. I can modify existing plugin frameworks with compatible code that can be updated from a central codebase. I have built both simple and highly complicated mission critical plugins. Existing Theme Modification - Starting Cost $500 If you have an existing theme that you'd like to modify, I can put together a scope of work based on your ideas and modify it to meet your needs. Whether you need colors changed, a mega menu added, or some custom Javascript, I can build a solution for you. Responsive Conversion for Existing Site - Starting Cost $1000 If you have a great theme that simply needs to be upgraded to be more compatible with mobile devices, I can help. I've built mobile responsive websites from scratch and I am very familiar with the ins and outs of dealing with mobile devices and browser quirks. I am regularly hired by web design agencies to handle this task in particular. E-Commerce Sites - Starting Cost $1500 The solution I recommend for E-Commerce is WooCommerce. I build sites with it all the time, and I consider it to be the absolute best E-Commerce solution for Wordpress. Final cost is dependent on things like shipping requirements, whether you want your products set up for you, and what payment gateways you want to use. I work on both fixed priced projects and hourly projects. I handle both of them the same way, we develop a scope (big or small) and I give an estimate of cost. I manually bill the time up to the amount that we agreed as work is completed. If your project comes in less than the estimate, that is what you pay, if not, your estimate is the maximum cost, unless we increase the scope. 50% Deposits are required for fixed priced projects that are simple. Alternate arrangements can be made for fixed price projects that are larger. We can build milestones for those to reduce risk on both sides. All work/time is tracked through a project management system for organization. I am very experienced with developing on Wordpress and I am fairly responsive to emails/skype and available for calls as needed. If you are an agency, please contact me to discuss volume and rates. less

    Wordpress Developer Needed to Move Javascript form on HTML site to new Wordpress installation
    John was a professional from the start. John communicated when he would start and complete the job and followed through exactly as planned. He understood the requirements, was spot on with his time estimate, even came in slightly under and completed the job in a timely manner. I will definitely work with John again.
